: FALKMAN AND HIS APACHE BAND

with Isobelita Alonso
Isobelita Alonzo was born in Bilbao, where she lived until after the Great War, when she came to England to complete her education. Many of the songs which she sings she learnt as a child from her mother, though she has since studied music both in this country and in France, Italy, and Germany. In Spain she spent some considerable time in the Gypsy country round Granada studying Flamenco singing.
She has been in England for the past two years, during which she has broadcast a good many times. She has been heard in such Variety productions as The Sunny Side, Money for Jam, and Southern Maid. She has also broadcast from this country to South America.

Part 2, ' Merlyn's New Job'
Cast
(by permission of Drury Lane Theatre)
(by permission of Maurice Browne)
Production by John Cheatle
Last week listeners heard how the Wart brought Merlyn home to be his tutor. In this week's story Merlyn will start the education of his pupil.
On a hot day the Wart envies the fish in the castle moat, so Merlyn lets him find out for himself what it is like to be a fish. He meets the harmless Roaches and the terrifying Pike, and emerges very much wiser than he went in. Whilst his friend Kay is having a tilting lesson, the Wart wants to see a real joust, and Merlyn again obliges. Listeners will hear his commentary on the encounter between King Pellinore and Sir Grummore.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
